A picture book

“Consider a small child sitting on his mother's lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the centreer of a closed circle - that of mother's body, arms, and the picture book...

That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart form the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books.

Despite all of our society's technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic.” 
Martha V. Parravano


I encourage my family clients to "read" their wall portraits to their children regularly as they grow - when the photographs were made and why, who was there, what also happened that week, month and year.

I suggest they put the images in the context of their children's lives...to tell the story of the family.

Could I tell the story of your family? 

Do you know a family that would love a family portrait?
